, representatives jan schakowsky and tim murphy. we've been debating obama care. in my view, both sides need to be very careful right now. democrats were passionate about defending the losers, the people getting denied, duped and dumped by the big insurance companies. that passion is what ultimately won the today, but today you've got a lot of democrats tonely tone-deaf from hearing complains from people who feel like they're the losers in the new system. that is not smart. we've got to show more compassion for people who will have to buy different plans. their fear and their pain is real. at the same time, the gop was totally indifferent to the pain of all the people who were losers in the old system. now they seem totally indifferent. that's not smart, either, for them. the democrats show a lot more concern for people, even if their numbers are few, who fear they might be losing ground. the gop should be willing and courageous enough to celebrate for the millions who are clear winners under obama care. so, to you, i think you are missing a huge opportunity here to actually celebrate with w

because as everyone knows, president obama gave a big break to big businesses. and we're saying everybody needs to have that because now that this is a total failure, we have got to do something about it. and, you know, my home state of minnesota supplied the 60th vote for obama care on the senate side there would be no obama care if minnesota wouldn't have supplied that 60th vote. so i think really what we need to do is say, for all of you senators and all of you democrat representatives who voted for this bill, you now it's your chance -- it's your time to fix it. so, if my premiums are going up, if my deductibles are going up, if my co-pays are going up, what are are they going to do about it? and i think instead of standing back and saying that's all folks. now they have got to actually do something and they have got to deliver for the american people. >> i mean, you got a chance in the house but zero chance in the senate. would you agree? >> no. i don't agree. >> really? >> i actually think that these democrat senators are going to be so shocked because that is what people in minneso
adding they fear retribution from the white house. there is embarrassment about the policies that need to be dropped or canceled due to the obama care regulations. but he also says the industry specifically warned the administration this would be the result if those additional coverage requirements moved forward which they did. >> the white house flatly denying that they are excerpting a exerting any pressure at all, right in. >> yes, according to jay carney, he says it ignores the fact insurance companies are talking about the law because they are trying to reach millions of new customers who will now have new affordable options available. >> drew griffin, thank you. coming up, u.s. government accused of spying on yahoo! and google and now the nsa is pushing back. plus dr. sanjay gupta was the last journalist to have an exclusive interview with kathleen sebelius. is her message about obama care better today than it was last week when he sat down with her? sanjay standing by to join us live. #%tia[ >>> new developments in the scandal over u.s. government spying. also new allegations th
you for taking time to update us. >> kathleen sebelius's topic. did she give the answers needed and will those answers change obama care. >> i am frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so let me say directly to the americans, you deserve better. i apologize. i am accountable to you for fixing the problems. for anyone, anywhere. if you look at a khan academy video, they cover everything from basic arithmetic to calculus, trigonometry, finance. you can really just get what you need at your own pace. and so, bank of america came and reached out to us and said, "we are really interested in making sure that everyone really understands personal finance." we're like, "well, we're already doing that." and so it was kind of a perfect match. >>> boston red sox hoping to do something they haven't been since 1918. >> if you are looking to score last minute tickets about prepa prepared to fork over a lot of cash. >> reporter: very, very expensive if you want to get in here tonight. some of those tickets going tore thousands of dollars. some of those in stand
everything that's happened that's been bad in the last three years has been associated with obama care. we need to be able to draw the distinction and point people to these exchanges so they can do some comparison shopping and get policies that will provide them with insurance. i would like to see you guys do a more aggressive job in regard to that. i would like to know from you, ma'am, how are the state exchanges working? what effects are the problems of the federal remember site having on state-run exchanges and how are the new upgrades in the website fixes going to affect state-run exchanges such as covered california? >> let me say that the state-based exchanges are doing a very good job. california as you mentioned has been a really nice success story, but there are large and small states. california and new york are huge states having great success. where we've been able to work closely with them and we talk with them daily is obviously they use the hub for verification of information. the hub has worked pretty much flawlessly. i always knock on wood when i say that. they've been abl
people back to work. >> thank you, mr. speaker. does the prime minister agree with president obama that there needs to be additional constraints how we gather new intelligence? we need to more effectively weigh the risk and rewards of our activities? will the prime minister follow the president's lead? >> what i said in the house before and i repeat again, obviously we listen to what other countries have to say about these issues but i believe in britain we have a good way of having intelligence and security services, having them overseen by parliamentary committee, having their work examined by intelligence commissioners and insure they act under proper legal basis. i take those responsibilities very, very seriously but i believe we have a good system in this country and we can be proud of people that work in it and proud of the people that oversee it. >> david anderson. >> mr. speaker, we mentioned the energy companies have been outsourced to china, french, lights may go out, pensions will freeze this year and we have -- big six. does the prime minister have any regrets -- by fo

politically for the obama administration. >> absolutely. and one of the problems here is that we really need toe secretary to come out today and acknowledge that. i think that's really the thing she has to do and provide more specifics than her colleague did yesterday. and the big problem president obama has is he is in a no-win situation. if you listen to the calls that she be removed, who do you replace her with? he can't have the senate hold up a confirmation, because they'll relitigate health care again. so he has got to stick by her. it sounds like he will, and they have to get this fixed by november 30th, they are promising, which i think will be a tall order for them to fill. >> you do complain management. how do you fix something that is broken whenever on the other side wants it done away. do you cut the bait right away and say we have problems with this website, and then leave it to the american people or say this is going to be a rocky boat ride for a couple of months and there may be smooth seas straight ahead. >> i think they need to acknowledge the issue tell us every day set b
